Way back, on Mother’s Day, May 13, 1945 Father Peyton produced his first national radio broadcast to celebrate all mothers and especially the “Greatest Mother of them All”, Our Blessed Lady. He concluded the program with a note of appreciation and challenge.
‘’I beg you to become a life-long apostle of the Family Rosary and on this day promise Mary that you will do all in your power to change the homes of the world into homes where God and Mary will be forever honored by the daily Family Rosary’’.
His message remains the same today Mother’s Day, which was celebrated on 10th May 2015.
Motherhood is one of the most universal forms of ministry. It is much more than a set role and list of tasks to be performed by one designated as a “mother”.
Before anything else, mothering is a way being and a way of relating.
This is the month of our Mother, Pray the Rosary for all the women and men who mother us in so many ways, Please send a special prayer card to your special Mother in case you forgot to.
